Sports Bars Around Spokane
Want to watch the Super Bowl at a local sports bar? These restaurants and bars around Spokane are all offering watch parties or pre-game events.
Pint House is one of the few places to eat in north Spokane, but it’s a good one! (There is also a Pint House in Spokane Valley, too!) Pint House is an excellent location to get good pub food, watch the game, and grab a drink.
Parking can sometimes be a challenge, especially during big games, but this is one spot you should add to your list if you want to watch games and enjoy the food!
Shawn O’Donnell’s Irish Pub
Head over to Shawn O’Donnell’s for game day specials! In addition to having the game on the TVs in the bar, and on the projector in their banquet room, Shawn O’Donnell’s also typically offers specials during big games, like the Super Bowl.
The Swinging Doors
A locally owned and family-operated business, The Swinging Doors is a can’t-miss location to watch almost any sport you want! There are also plenty of TVs around, and the restaurant itself offers a good variety of pub fare, including steaks.
The Swinging Doors has digital satellite and subscribes to the:
- NFL Ticket
- MLB Extra Innings
- NBA League Pass
- ESPN Gameplan
- Fox Soccer Channel
- Big Ten Network
- Regional Fox Sports Networks
The Swinging Doors also has over 50 TVs, a 14′ HD projection screen for those good games, and more. The Swinging Doors always shows every NFL game on Sundays, offers a full bar and has 27 beers on tap.
On days when Gonzaga is playing, make sure to call ahead and make a reservation – Gonzaga games, particularly March madness games, are popular and tables fill up fast!
The Swinging Doors is located at 1018 W Francis Ave, Spokane.
24Taps Burgers and Brews
One of the best places in Spokane to see your favorite game because you can ask for a mini speaker to watch and listen to your game! 24 Taps has dozens of TVs and, if you can’t hear your game well enough, you can get your own portable speaker to hear every play.
The best part about this sports bar in Spokane? There’s really no bad seat in the house! We’ve sat in almost every part of 24 Taps and never had a hard time. While it will probably get rowdy at 24 Taps during March madness, it will be a good time.
24Taps also offers 12 local craft beers and 12 large brewery beers.
24Taps is located at 825 W Riverside Ave, Spokane. For hours and specials, click here.
Flatstick Pub is an excellent place to watch the game if you’d like to watch the game and have some fun while doing it. In addition to having several large TVs to watch the game, Flatstick also has games like Duffleboard, and mini golf.
You can order food through an app (check out Flatstick’s menu here) and enjoy happy hour every Monday through Friday from 3 to 6 pm.
Flatstick is located in downtown Spokane and is only 21+ after 7 pm, so you’ll be able to catch most games with the whole family. Find more information about Flatstick Pub here.
Lord Stanley’s is first and foremost a hockey sports bar, but definitely plays other games (including football and basketball) as well! With 16 TVs and 165″ HD projector, Lord Stanley’s has something for everyone.
In addition to beer and cocktails, Lord Stanley’s also offers wings, flatbreads, salads, hummus, homemade chili among other options.
For Super Bowl 2023, Lord Stanley’s is offering prize and drink specials. Learn more here.
Lord Stanley’s is located at 380 W. Riverside Ave. Spokane, WA 99201.
Pooles Public House
Another one of my favorites for good food (go for brunch!), good atmosphere and good TV watching. Again, the closer to the bar you can get will have better angles for TV viewing, but Pooles has such a great atmosphere, you’ll enjoy eating, chatting and watching the games.
There are 2 Pooles locations, but my favorite location is the Ruby location. Poole’s has a breakfast menu for all of you 10 am football watchers, too.
Lost Boys Garage
Lost Boys Garage is a great place to watch games, although it can be tight in the winter when the patio isn’t available. The food is great, there’s really no bad seat in the house, and drinks are plentiful.
Your challenges are: parking! And finding a spot on busy game days. This Super Bowl, Lost Boys’ Garage will have a free taco bar and happy hour all day!
